Did the Yoshimura kit, it was pretty easy to do, looks great and has LED plate light included.
Only "mod" is drilling out a few rivets from the stock fender's signal mounts, but it preserves the stock fender in case someone would want it, lol.
Taking my time took about 45 minutes to install.
As for modding the stock fender, I thought about it very briefly, but simply shortening it would not have cleaned up the clunky, "Transformers" cartoonish look of it.
I have come to terms with the possibility of dying while riding, life has a 100% death rate. I would rather live having fun and end up dead in a motorcycle crash than never do anything fun because it's dangerous and I might get killed. No one makes it out alive anyway. - From a friend on another forum, used with his permission.
